BEIRUT, LEBANON 11:55 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a massive offensive in the northern countryside of Hama today, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at a number of sites near the Hama-Idlib Highway.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s massive assault would prove successful this evening, as their forces managed to capture the strategic town of Souran.

According to a military source in Hama, the Syrian Arab Army was forced to retreat after the jihadist rebels fractured their front-lines at Souran, leaving them with no choice but to withdraw from the town.

With this latest offensive under way in northern Hama, the jihadist rebels have likely delayed the Syrian Arab Army’s planned operation in the Aleppo countryside.

More importantly, what the h**l is wrong with AlMasdarNews’ comment system that it consistently logs you out and doesn’t let you stay logged in to view an article and use your account to comment?

Time for a bomb-run.

This is being done to stop the advance onto Maskenah plain and around Palmyra.
The idea is to have Damascus call back the only capable units to fix these problems, so that dash can recuperate and prevent Syria from recuperating territory in the east and nearing DZ. It s still the most strategic target.

Souran is worthless. Locals gave it up in matter of hours both times; they will do it again the third time around.
